On this site in the 1790s stood one of Philadelphia's five Quaker meeting houses. Here members of the Society of Friends gathered to worship.
The religious freedom guaranteed to those who settled in Pennsylvania attracted not only Quakers, but many others. A French visitor in the 1790s noted that the city had 33 places of worship.
